Sit him down and give him a reality check on it and wake him up from his fantasy world of big goverment taking care of every problem in existence.
Have kleenexs and a time-out chair at the ready.
Oh, he will find out soon enough. If and when the ACA becomes accessible, and when Direction finds himself in the market for insurance because he HAS to have it, he will realize just how expensive it is.
Don't get me wrong. I think there is a need for an insurance exchange that accepts pre existing conditions. I think a child with a congenital defect for example, should be able to have coverage. However, it shouldn't be pooled with every other insurance in order to lower the cost. All that does is raises it for everyone else. If the government wants to subsidize something, then subsidize those type of policies, not policies covering fatasses with diabetes, smokers, or lazy asses that don't want to work.
